Description (see definition): Small cove lying 1 mi E of Essex Point on the N coast of Livingston Island, in the South Shetland Islands. The name Richards Island was given by James Weddell in 1820-23 to the island close north of this cove, probably for Captain Richards of the sealer George of Liverpool who visited the South Shetland Islands in 1820-21. Since the name Window Island (q.v.) has priority, the name Richards has been transferred to this nearby cove.
